Saw these on a supermarket thread, but don't fit this specific pair.
Curious if anyone could give me some more info on them, as the seller didn't respond to my question in the thread.

Never heard of them before, and they look like perfect cheap summer beat up shoes...
Some cheap US brand that I as a European have no reason to know?
A quick google search yielded no results as "zig zag" came up with lots of stuff about stitching...

Any info?

A socal classic, used to be 6 bucks a pop but now 16 or so I forget exactly. Buddy has been wearing them for over 12 years. Also called whinos.

PS. They fall apart quickly.

SLB in Los Angeles has been my go to place for these. Very comfortable shoes, the soles stand up to lots of wear, the upper, although very soft and comfy, does tend to feel flimsy after a while. They have black, blue, khaki, and brown in laceup versions. Black midtop chukka, also slipon versions too. Theyre about 15-16 bucks.

Army surplus stores I think carry these. The one at Old Orange (CA) does anyways. I don't think they have the chukkas though, just the lows.

Yeah, army navy is the way to go.
Sometimes you'll find different combos like black with tan sole or black on black.

Aint never seen the mid-top chukkas though. Somebody PM me if you know where I can find those.

The Black-on-Black mid tops can be found at Mollusk Surf Shop in Venice. I don't know the extent of their supply, but I do know they've had them there for months.

The colour of the blue ones is really nice, it reminds me a bit of natural indigo dyed denim. Perfect.
Thrown new laces in and they're good to go.

Someone picked them up for me in LA (not disclosing his name right now to prevent him from getting swamped with requests, he can post in here himself if he wants), I also remember someone offering a proxy service for these in the market a while back...
I walked around in the chukkas all day yesterday and they were very comfortable, very soft, not much support, a bit like slippers/house shoes.
I sized them like my vans, I was advised that the lows ar like authentics (no padding) so went half a size down, I feel that this probably wasn't neccesary.

Eh. One day I'll find someone that can get me those damn chukkas.
